Winemaker's Notes:

From the relatively cool districts around Cairanne and Jonquières, the Blanc is an exotic blend of melon, honeysuckle, lemon aromas and flavors. Its freshness and intensity are the result of cold fermentation of the hand-picked grapes, 50% White Grenache, 20% Bourboulenc, 10% Marsanne, and 10% Roussanne, and 10%Viognier. "Notes of grilled almonds and vanilla add interest to this firm, spicy white. Clean and well-balanced, with apple and melon flavors.
